Before the pandemic, my husband worked in an office with mostly female employees. One woman began flirting with him, paying him special attention. While they walked to the parking lot at the end of the day, she asked if she could talk to him. At his car, he turned to put his laptop in the back seat. When he turned back, she kissed him.
He told me it was all very tempting. She was a pretty woman and had given him lots of compliments and attention, but he pushed her back from him and told her that he wasn’t interested and to please leave him alone or he would talk to her supervisor. My husband has a lot of moral strength and character, but that’s not all that kept him from falling for this home-wrecker. He had a wife at home who treated him like her lover.
We’d been married for 13 years at the time, with two small children who kept me busy all day. But I got up with him every morning and made him a hot breakfast. I packed his lunch and added homemade cookies and love notes. And every night after the kids were in bed, we had time alone together. I didn’t nag him, demean him or treat him like an idiot. He was and is my lover and my man. That “bimbo” at work didn’t stand a chance against a woman who knew how to care for her man. I wasn’t raised with this knowledge nor did I have a good example of how to behave as a wife, but I’ve listened to you and read your books since I was a teenager!
